It’s been another eventful week on Game of Thrones and with the shocking trial by combat the reactions were sure to be lively, unlike certain Martells. Here are this week’s particularly entertaining recaps, reviews and commentary.
Missing the recorded schadenfreude from the Red Wedding? Here’s a live reaction video from What the Flick.
Live reactions rarely disappoint.
Read the books:
Ozzy Man gives us a cheer (thanks!) and mourns Oberyn. Also, an alternate version of the final scene.
Emergency Awesome bringing you the top WTF moments, particularly relevant this week
History of Westeros talks episode 8 with spoilers at the end. Speak briefly about George’s appearance at Con Carolinas.
SourceFed discusses the episode. Though there are two Unsullied, apparently there was a book spoiler a couple of weeks back, so watch at your own risk!
Kenny’s baaaack to help Sandrine deal with episode 8 on HappyCool (when canon strikes)
What the Flick?!? delves into episode 8 after the shock wears off (do they usually watch the show together? If not, surely they must have known something was up)
Total Film shares Sophie Turner’s wish for a dramatic death scene. Apparently Nikolaj and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) are friends! Popular Greyjoy Fan Cast Mads said he’d be up for a cameo…
Gay of Thrones discussed Episode 8 with who, if I’m not mistaken, is Dawn from the British Office? (and Shaun of the Dead, obviously)
I like how many of the videos pointed out that even book readers had something to be shocked about by the Viper/Mountain duel. Even though the majority of the scene was basically lifted from the pages of ASOS, the end was certainly gruesome. Will the last two episodes stack up for our video reviewers? Time will tell.
